Today's letter is C. It stands for CONFUSED.
(I didn't know confused was an emotion ~ I thought it was a state of being!)
The question that the book ABC Feelings: A Learning/Coloring Book by Alexandra Delis-Abrams, PhD, is, "Can you think of a time when you felt confused?"
She also says, "When a person feels confused, it's a a good idea to stop what he's doing, take a few deep breaths, and relax inside. That helps him choose what he wants most."
Well, there you go.
I am often confused when people say one thing and then do another. Or say one thing and then say another and then do yet another.
When one plus one does not equal two, I get confused.
I am not much of a game player.
I don't count cards, I play what's in my hand and rarely give a thought to what is in anyone else's.
Sometimes I win, sometimes I lose.
Gullible, that could describe me.
Anyway, when people are duplicitous, I get confused.
Unless, of course, I see them as a duplicitous whole - like ying-yang man above.
"I yam what I yam, a ying-yang man."
Nothing confusing about that!
So - can you think of a time when you felt confused?
(Note to self - it says "felt", not "were")
